With you right here beside me, we'd have had the world between us.
Had I allowed your hand to guide me, like a perfect stroke of genius.
I might have noticed right beneath my very nose.
As I was thrashing through the thorns, I stumbled on the rose.

Chorus:
Oh if every angel near and far, knew how beautiful you really are.
Then heaven might go right to sleep, its work complete.

I do believe you can carry, twice the weight of every suffering fool.
And either wisdom that you share, we wouldn't have these tears to struggle through.
I might have noticed I'd forgotten what I'd set out to win.
And where I wanted to arrive is where you've always been.

Chorus:
Oh if every angel near and far, knew how beautiful you really are.
Then heaven might go right to sleep, its work complete.

For every prize on earth I might've won, I'd trade them all away for just this one.
Just the sight of heaven getting it right.

Chorus:
Oh if every angel near and far, knew how beautiful you really are.
Then heaven might go right to sleep, its work complete.

    General CommentThis song has great lyrics my favorite being "I do believe you can carry, twice the weight of every suffering fool. And either wisdom that you share, we wouldn't have these tears to struggle through. I might have noticed I'd forgotten what I'd set out to win. ***And where I wanted to arrive is where you've always been.***" That last part is just so true to me that sometimes we search everywhere for something that's always been right in front of us.

    Lyric CorrectionIt should be "Had I the wisdom" not "and either wisdom". I love this too.
